Loose watercolor flower cards – Honeybee + Ellen Hutson + Helping Texas!

Let’s send donations and cards of encouragement to Texas! 

Loose watercolor flower cards – Honeybee + Ellen Hutson

I had a big stack of watercolor cards and postcards staring at me – I stamped up some sentiments from this beautiful new set from Ellen Hutson and Honey Bee – limited release, so pick it up quick! – and just started going to town with flowers! If you’ve taken the Fresh Florals Class, it’s some encouragement to you to get loose and wild with your painting! Note that this stamp set works so well with some other Honey Bee stamp sets that Ellen bundled them up at a discount!!! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

So quick…so pretty!


Send some sunshine to the Gulf – and help me fundraise!

I had this video made before the hurricane….but I’m going to send ALL 25 of the cards I made out of these cards and postcards to first responders in the Gulf. Sunshine is exactly what’s needed, right!?

I’ve put together some addresses that you can send cards to, as well as organizationss we can all donate to. For every comment on this post by Friday Sept 1st, I’m donating $5 – so be sure to leave a comment telling me how many cards YOU commit to send out in the next 10 days. Yes, 10 days is my deadline, or you know you won’t get around to doing it!!

For the addresses and orgs to donate to, click HERE  or on the image below! After leaving a comment, that is!

Facebook Live videos mentioned in today’s video:

Throughout July (World Watercolor Month), I did a bunch of Facebook Live videos – so for those who love realtime watercolor – have at it! Click on each photo to be taken to that video on Facebook.

The entire state of TX guard has been activated to assist!
